About us

Our history is our future

We have come a long way from the original small company of raw materials and varnishes founded in Naples (Italy) by Gennaro Calabria far in 1936. Today Prochin Italia is considered one of the leading companies in the sector of silicates and chemicals, favoring trustworthiness, professionalism and proficiency.


Gennaro Calabria starts a small business in Naples (Italy) by marketing raw materials for industry.


The company business grows and the activities are transferred to a 5,000 sq.m. plant in the south of Naples


The plant is expanded and it becomes the first company on the market that produces sodium silicate


Business develops and a new headquarter in Marcianise starts the activities (Caserta)


Acquisition of the majority share of Crosfield Italia, a company that produces sodium, potassium and lithium silicates.

Crosfield Italia, an Italian industrial group, since 1967 has established itself in the
production of silicates and in the continuous commitment to innovation and respect for the
environment. In collaboration with Crosfield Ltd, Prochin Italia has been able to take full
advantages in terms of know-how, logistic optimization, completeness of
the production range of silicates and customers satisfaction.
